Join us at the Center for Contemporary Arts for a talk by composer and media artist Adam Basanta.

Adam Basanta (b. 1985) is an award-winning composer and media artist whose work traverses electroacoustic and instrumental composition, audiovisual installations, site-specific interventions, laptop performance, and dynamic light design. His artistic output interrogates the intersections between conceptual and sensorial dimensions of listening and audiovisual perception, the re-animation of quotidian objects, and the articulation of site and space. His concert works have been presented worldwide and awarded multiple national and international prizes, including M├ętamorphoses 2010 (Belgium) and the John Weinzweig grand prize in the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers (Canada).

For his 2015 Currents installation, Basanta presents “A Room Listening to Itself” – a site-specific sound installation exploring amplified acoustic inactivity within a unique spatio-acoustic environment.
